Squash Blossom Quesadillas

So delicate.  So gorgeous.  So unassuming.  Yup, that's the squash blossom for you.  Mexi walked into the kitchen with a big smile on his face and a two handfuls of these beauties the other day...which he had procured from the community garden on his way home from dropping of some items at the library.  It seems to me that we're the only ones who actually take these from the garden, because they're always there, waiting for us.  Hey, cool with me.  So...what's the simplest thing to do with this beauty?  Slide into a quesadilla.

squash blossoms
melting cheese
salsa verde or amarillo

Heat a heavy skillet or comal over medium-high heat.  Once it is very hot, set a tortilla on top.  Cover it with melting cheese, layer it with squash blossoms, drizzle it with salsa, cover it with another tortilla.  Once the bottom is golden and toasty, flip it and make that side golden and toasty.  Commence eating.

Show it off...or just eat in peace...
...ooey gooey #cheeseslut joy!
